The HMS Caroline, one of the most important surviving ships from the First World War, is set to become Northern Ireland's latest tourist attraction.
Similar to the HMS Belfast which is moored on the Thames in London, the ship will be refurbished and restored to look as she did during the war.
The huge ship is currently moored at Alexandra Dock in Liverpool, and will stay there until funds can be secured to restore her.
The National Museum of the Royal Navy is in talks with the Heritage Lottery Fund which it hopes will be able to help them restore the ship.
As reported in the Telegraph, Defence minister, Mark Francois, said "We are very pleased and relieved that HMS Caroline has been secured for future generations."
"It was critical that the ship was preserved and made accessible to the public," he added.
